You will learn to understand the motivations and backgrounds behind modern world events and identities. When you arrive at Warwick, you will choose either the Renaissance and Modern, or the Modern stream. Within these you have flexibility to choose from a variety of study options, spanning geography and time, so your course can change as your interests evolve. These cover British, European, American, Asian and African history, enabling you to specialise in areas of pre-existing academic interest or to explore new and constantly evolving global histories. You can also choose outside options from a compatible academic field, including a foreign language. You will learn to assess and analyse large quantities of information taken from historical sources including texts, images and film, and to present well-structured conclusions. We encourage you to develop your own thoughts and arguments, and to critically analyse others before presenting your own case.
